Summer time has meant a break for the kids and for us parents. Many children go to Summer camps or other lengthy trips away from home. While kids will certainly enjoy their time away at camp, they will also likely get homesick. This is normal but how can we as parents let them know that we are thinking about them?

Gourmet Gift Baskets has just the solution. They offer many care package ideas including ones geared towards children. Whether you want to send a box with crafts to keep them busy or whether you want to send a box with yummy treats, they have you covered.

I recently received their Gluten Free Care Package for myself and my daughter to check out. 

I thought the packaging was compact and impressive. Someone receiving this care package wouldn't have to deal with a large box to open. The picture above shows what the package looked like upon opening. We couldn't wait to dig in and try everything!

Here is what the care package contained (list and information credit goes to

• Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies by Lucy's Cookies - 5.25 oz. -Chocolate lovers beware: you will fall in love with these cookies! These gluten free goodies are sure to become one of your new favorites.

• Sea Salt Kettle Chips by Kettle Brand Potato Chips - 1.5 oz. - Organic potatoes are seasoned with a touch of sea salt and then cooked to perfection to deliver undeniable flavor and crunch.

• Double Dipped Peanuts by Old Dominion Peanut Company - 3 oz. - An elegant treat of large Virginia peanuts that are drenched in rich, velvety chocolate.

What an assortment! We tried everything and while we enjoyed some items more than others, there was nothing in the box that we absolutely disliked. My daughters most favorite was the 3 types of candy as they were familiar to her. The Skittles, Mike & Ike and Sour Patch Kids are on her top list of candy favorites so they were a sure hit. Beyond those, she loved the Great Granny Apple Chips and Lucy's Cookies. The apple chips are a crunchy and sweet way to eat apples for a snack. The Lucy's cookies taste amazing for gluten free. I wouldn't have known just by taste. The peanut brittle is fantastic too.

Gourmet Gift Baskets has many different types of gift baskets and care packages geared to just about anyone you need a gift for. I would highly recommend checking them out the next time you need a gift for that special someone.
